Pollensa – the Region where Luxury meets Understatement
In some areas, particularly in the southern regions, modern lifestyle has not left much visible tradition. In these slightly hedonistic locations like Port Adriano http://www.portadriano.com or Puerto Portals the meaning of luxury is “flash it” and the more you have then show it!
You show the world what you have achieved and how high your standard of living is. If it is not your style to flaunt your luxury for all to see then you really should never ever consider purchasing a property in these areas!
However, like we said at the beginning, Mallorca is multi-faceted and this is not the way of life in charming and emblematic Pollensa. The whole region is dominated by the most awesome beauty nature has to offer, with the mighty Tramuntana mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage site, serving as the protective backdrop. And, of course, completely unbiased, we at Balearic Properties declare Pollensa to be one of the most beautiful towns of Mallorca. This town has, without the shadow of a doubt, always been one of the most sought after areas on Mallorca for the discreetly rich and famous to visit and subsequently purchase a property. The list of VIPs who frequent the region is a who’s who of the media and political world. The natural beauty of this region has been captured time after time by world famous artists, or has been projected around the world in various Hollywood films!
In the Pollensa region, luxury is noticed at a second glance; here luxury is not flashy and obvious for all to see, in Pollensa luxury is defined by elegance, superb quality, top-of-the-range blending with traditional elements. This is where understatement comes in, in this region a discreet lifestyle is trendy and this attitude is also reflected in the luxury properties that Balearic Properties can offer to their VIP clients, who wish to remain anonymous to the public. Stunning properties with WOW factors that are in the immediate surroundings have retained their charming traditional features and offer a harmony between Mallorca yesteryear and modern day interior design.
Luxury at a second glance interpreted to perfection in this magnificent country estate with private access to a peaceful beach:
For the more public person, one of the favourite meeting places is the fantastic Golf Course with its breath taking views over the 2 stunning bays, Pollensa and Alcudia, in the north of Mallorca: Golf Pollensa. This 9-hole Golf Course is a joy to play although you might find yourself a bit distracted from your game by the temptation to let your eyes roam over the lush Pollensa countryside to the sea.
Here, stunning villas on the Golf Course, still offer total privacy even though they are not tucked away on their extensive land.
Balearic Properties has fine villas for Golf lovers in their listings: upon entering you will be amazed at the luxurious interior of a villa that looks just so unassuming from the outside – luxury meeting understatement yet again!
Pollensa town still remains very traditional and unspoilt by mass tourism. Surrounded by nature, it is the ideal place to escape a hectic lifestyle back home and enjoy the laid-back Mediterranean philosophy.
Although Pollensa has become one of Mallorca’s most popular tourist spots, it still presents itself unspoilt, clinging stubbornly onto charming traditions and style. The town, with its ochre-coloured stone houses and winding lanes is picturesquely situated on the edge of fertile farmland, its houses winding themselves up and around the famous Calvari Mountain.
Its central market square surrounded by trendy cafés is the in-place to see / be seen, especially on a Sunday morning when the weekly market takes place.
In fact, luxury is so understated and fame is absolutely laid-back here in this part of the world, that you could find yourself sitting next to a famous Hollywood star in one of the cafés on the main square and not even realising it! Or, as happened to Antonio Fuster, the CEO at Balearic Properties, whilst having lunch with his family in Pollensa’s popular restaurant “Clivia” some years ago, HRH Princess Caroline from Monaco and her family also popped in for lunch!
